There’s nothing quite like having a full head of healthy, luxuriant hair. Unfortunately, achieving such a thing can be difficult, especially for those with particularly thin or brittle hair. The average rate of growth for hair is about six inches every year, but this can vary from person to person for a number of reasons.
Some people are simply more genetically inclined to grow long hair than others. While there’s nothing you can do to change your genes, there are many ways to help encourage hair growth.
Adopt a Healthier Lifestyle
In general, your hair will grow faster if you take care of your body as a whole. For starters, try to eat a healthy diet that is rich in leafy green vegetables and lean protein.
Because hair is made of protein, eating foods like eggs, fish, nuts and lean meats can help enrich your hair and stimulate its growth.
It is important not to eat excessive amounts, however. Allocating about 15 percent of your diet to proteins should be sufficient to promote healthy hair growth.
You should also try to cut as much unhealthy food from your diet as possible. This includes food and beverages rich in sugar, fat and caffeine. Small amounts of such foods are relatively harmless, but consuming them regularly can inhibit hair growth. Likewise, smokers should try to quit their cigarette habits, or at least cut back. Be sure to keep healthy amounts of good fats and fatty acids in your diet, as recent research suggests that such substances could help signal the hair to grow more quickly.
In addition to fatty acids, leafy greens, and protein, make sure you are getting the right amount of vitamins every day. Biotin, magnesium, beta-carotene and vitamins A, B, C and E all stimulate hair growth. Finally, be sure to drink an adequate amount of water.
Consuming 8 to 10 glasses of water each day keeps your hair healthy and hydrated and also promotes overall healthiness. Conversely, alcohol and drugs tend to reverse this effect, slowing down hair growth.
Exercise is also an effective way of stimulating quicker hair growth. Regular cardiovascular workouts help your blood flow throughout your body, allowing more nutrients to reach your hair follicles via the bloodstream.
Poor blood flow will negatively affect the growth of your hair, making it more dull and brittle. Exercise can also help you better manage stress, which has been proven to contribute to hair loss.
Take Care of Your Scalp
In addition to making healthy lifestyle changes, you should also devote special attention to your scalp. Wash your scalp and hair regularly to eliminate buildup and residue, which can block your pores and hair follicles. This makes it difficult for your hair to grow quickly. However, you should avoid washing your hair too often, as this can dry your scalp and cause your hair to become too dry.
You should also try massaging your scalp several times a day. Like exercise, scalp massages promote healthy circulation to your head. Additionally, the additional nutrients they receive will help ensure your hair stays healthy and supple while it grows. Massage your scalp at least once each week for about 3 minutes by applying pressure to the top of your head while moving your fingertips in circular motions.
Use Mira Hair Oil
One of the most effective and easiest ways to stimulate the growth of your hair is applying Mira hair oil to your scalp. Using the oil in conjunction with the tips above can help you achieve a rate of hair growth that far exceeds the average of half an inch per month.
Mira hair oil has been used in an East Indian village for years, giving its inhabitants some of the healthiest and best-looking hair in the world. Using Mira hair oil causes many beneficial effects, including but not limited to:
- Thick, dense hair that resists breakage
- Hair that shines and feel silky to the touch
- Added volume, resulting in longer-looking hair
- Fewer split ends due to brittle hair
- Less itching and relief from psoriasis
- Less gray hair and dandruff
- Additional hair growth of 2 to 3 inches each month
One of the best things about Mira hair oil is that it works on nearly any type of hair. Individuals with both oily and dry hair will benefit from using the oil, as will those with straight, curly, thick or fine hair. Unlike other similar products, Mira hair oil deeply conditions your hair and scalp, providing your follicles with the moisture they need to produce strong, beautiful hair.
In doing so, Mira hair oil also combats frizz, avoiding the wild hair that humid environments can cause. Likewise, Mira hair oil serves as a remedy for sun damaged hair. This prevents hair from becoming dry and course.
Mira hair oil is also all natural, so you do not have to worry about dangerous chemicals penetrating your scalp and inhibiting hair growth. Other synthetic oils may promote hair growth at first, but the synthetic chemicals these products are based on can eventually cause scalp irritation, hair loss and other undesirable effects.
Mira hair oil will provide you with benefits regardless of the state of your hair, making it a valuable resource for anyone who wants to enjoy richer, longer and healthier hair.

Testimonials"My review 'I came across Mira oil when I was surfing the internet for a product that will save my breaking hair. I read the many writings on how effective the product is and decided to give it a try. I did not see it as a gamble since I could always have my money back in case it didn't work. Mira oil has no scent and therefore good for those sensitive to perfume. I have been using it for the past 5 months as a daily moisturizer and monthly hot oil therapy. I must say that all my bald spots have disappeared. My natural african hair now glows with beauty.' This is what II came up with."
Marian nkansah"I've been using Mira hair oil since one year. Here is my testimonial in about 300 words.
Since I am form India, the herbs used in the oil is not new to me. We've been using the herbs (amla, hibiscus, bhringraj,shikakai, henna) for washing and conditioning hair. Since my hair fall was heavy, I tried several ayurvedic hair oils in India but with no permanent result. While searching for good hair oil, I came across Mira hair oil and thought let me give a try. Infact, our search for a good hair oil begins and ends with this webiste. I used for 5 months continuously (twice a week) and noticed tremendous improvement. I'd like to say to all the users to have patience. Even if you do not expect results in 60 days, keep trying for another 60 days and definitely the results will begin to show up. It takes a little longer on some people.
It seemed over priced to me but it is worth it. One bottle will last 2 months! I've been placing order regularly especially when there is offer of buy one and get one free.
The oil is very light with mild fragrance. The oil works like a hair setting gel and the hair doesn't look oily at all."
But it is worth Ii
Sahana Joshi- Bangalore, karnataka India"Ok I must admit I am obsessed with my hair and I have had first and great experience with Mira hair oil:
My encounter with Mira hair oil came when I was searching for a thinning hair remedy on the net. As a woman I was devastated with my thinning hair. A thinning patch over my head gave me many sleepless nights. I saw the Mira site and I decided to give it a try. The first bottle I saw a slight change which convinced me to keep at it. 3 bottles later and my thinning patches are nearly gone. Now it took 2 years for me to lose my hair and with Mira in 6 months the change was obvious. So I am a fan. Mira hair oil changed my hair and life. I am sold! The oil is perfect and has no odor. Now that I have actually used it for this time I just love it. And I think it's just wonderful for the hair
I know it works for all hair types as my best friend is Asian and she also uses it and loves it. Apart from making my hair thick again and growing the thinning spots back , Mira hair oil has made my hair soft, thicker and easier to style
The oil is a bit expensive when you First come across it. But when you see the effects plus the fact that it will last you 2 months a bottle it is well worth the price. From my personal experience I can recommend it"
Janessa Jackson, Georgia USA“Hello my name is Joan. I was looking for a product that would help with my crazy, curly hair. I am growing my hair out and it just seemed as it was getting longer, it would get more tangled, more split ends, frizzy, and it looked as if I was losing a lot more hair in the shower. Also, I think I hit a little bit of a plateau with my growth also. I was looking for a product that could help with these things. Something that wasn’t messy and that was convenient. I came across Mira Hair oil as I was surfing the web and I went on their site. I was reading all the testimonials and I couldn’t believe it. There is no was an oil can do all of these things plus, help gain inches.
I ordered it right away. I received the product a few days ago. I have used it twice. You’re only supposed to use the oils three times a week, half teaspoon to a full teaspoon. I put it on at night, and wash it out in the morning. It is easier for me to do it that way. The oil is very light and non-greasy. Not what you would expect. In the two days I have used this oil, I can already notice a difference in my hair.
My hair is softer, more manageable, and shiny. Also, it seems that I am not having as much hair fall out in the shower either. I think the growth will come when I am done with this bottle. I am getting more of course!! I was a skeptic also but after much research and finally buying the product, I can’t complain. I am already seeing improvement after only 2 days of use. Plus, there is a guarantee on the product also. Plus, any questions you may have, you can email and John and Eva will get with you in a timely manner. Yes, they are real people. You never know until you try. It is worth a shot. You have nothing to lose”
Joan"Hi been using Mira hair oil for 2-3 months now and have really noticed a difference in my hair. I have never been able to grow my hair beyond collar length as it would split away, and I had tried various conditioners and shampoos to no avail. I now have hair just past my shoulders!! I love it. My hair has a lot of grey so I do put a colourant on it, but even so the overall condition and look of my hair has improved quite dramatically. Friends have commented on how nice it looks. Thank you very much for this wonderful product."
